I think it must be Pigpen! Part of review of 11/8/69 from deadlistening.com:

"It’s all gloriously too much. Just when it seems that the song is back for a while they really flip out into Space. But Jerry is slamming out the Caution rhythm even faster now and Pigpen comes right back to the microphone. His inspired rap follows.
"Work fine for me
And my grandmother too
It work purdy good
I know it gonna work for you
Ain’t no way
To get around it
I know
Somebody good found it.."

The entire rap is amazing. Pig assembles the words, story, and rhythms as if he spent months getting it just exactly perfect. He’s more in a personal zone. His lines sort of swim and slide along. It’s an eyes closed sort of thing. After some time, you can hear the band putting together The Main Ten behind him.”

I'm 99% positive it's not Pigpen. The voice sounds different!

I hear what you mean. It is suggested in the compendium that it may be someone else (the reviewer says possibly Mickey?) But it wouldn’t surprise me that it is just Pig speaking, as opposed to him singing. Don’t know, but thanks anyhow – love this show!

Yeah it was really just an excuse to mention this fantastic show. The UJB jam always gives me chills.
